Y’ALL. It’s Halloweekend! I don’t know what the hell you’re all planning to do, but I’m going to sit snugly on my couch watching Stranger Things (our GIF theme, DUH!) and eating as many Reese’s peanut butter pumpkins as my body will allow! (Exact number TBD!) Should you feel inclined to venture farther afield, there are plenty of options for you to consider below. Before we crack into all of them, let’s first discuss what important stuff you might’ve missed on BYT this week:

DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DO DUNNNNNNN.

  • First, grab $15-$18 tickets to see Torres play Music Hall of Williamsburg!
  • Although a $25+ Julien Baker, Half Waif and Petal show at Town Hall sounds pretty rad, too…
  • …plus Princess (Maya Rudolph + Gretchen Lieberum’s Prince cover band) will play Brooklyn Bowl for$30!
  • Stick around to d-d-d-d-dance w/ Plastic Plates for $10 afterwards!
  • And while we’re on the topic of d-d-d-d-dancin’, Afrojack will be at Brooklyn Hangar for $59+.
  • You can also hit up Brooklyn Steel for a $30 Fischerspooner show…
